I'll warn you this isn't the most exciting post ever but it was a neccessary step in getting these guys finished.
I needed to grind down the slag that was created when I welded the steel rods together the the ends would be smooth and finished.
I thought the grinding bit on my Dremel Tool would work for this job but it was taking for ever! I needed to bring out the big guns. Luckliy my neighbor had a ginder- that worked fabulously!
Once I got all the corners smoothed out it was time for painting. I used Rustoleum Spray Paint specially made to prevent rust. On the other tables I made I didn't use this type of paint and rust will seep out of the bottom exposed edges.
And Tu-Dah! Here are the tables looking fabulous. All they need now is a wood top and they are finished!
Oh and if your wondering how to keep a 2 year old busy while your grinding and spray painting a pool works wonders!
Oh and having a dog join in doesn't hurt either....
Oh ya, and I changed up my blog design. What do you think? I thought since we're moving to a new place it was time for a new blog header. My Do It Yourself sassy Pin Up Girl Header was fun but it was time for her to retire. She might pop up again- you never know.
And- Yay it's the weekend!!!!
